Time Lapse Video in Collaboration with Brian Guice Media

leave a comment »

Brian Guice Brian Guice

This will be the first in what I hope is a flurry of posts recapping a very productive start to 2014 for my work.  I had been interested in doing some kind of promotional video to give viewers an idea of how my drawings come together from start to finish.  I was lucky enough to find Brian Guice Media here in Laramie, Wyoming who had done some phenomenal time lapse videos of some of the artists doing mural work downtown.  Brian was outstanding to work with throughout the process, and I am very pleased with the results of our work together.  I also want to acknowledge Wesley Berg, who was a visiting artist I invited to UW in early 2014 and who I met a few years ago from a drawing show we did in Santa Fe.  Wesley provided the song for the video from his musical project, Glacier Face, and it’s pretty great.

Studio Work, 2014

leave a comment »

These are a few pieces I have been working on this winter including an annual self portrait, a text piece and a trash bag drawing I started as a public drawing demonstration in conjunction with “Definining Territories: Contemporary Drawing” exhibition at the Parkland Art Gallery in Champaign, IL in the fall.  Now that it is finished, I will send the drawing back to the gallery to be auctioned to benefit the students of Parkland College.

AUNIVERSAL PICTURE 12

leave a comment »

I just completed a new piece fairly quickly before classes start.  AUNIVERSAL PICTURE 12, charcoal on paper, 22″ x 30″, 2014.  Up next: the 2014 Self Portrait.  Then, I plan on starting my first 80″ x 80″ piece on linen which should take me the rest of the semester.
